The visitors look value in Sunday's live Bundesliga clash in Bremen.
Werder Bremen v Eintracht Frankfurt - Sunday 16:30, BT Sport 2
Werder Bremen’s form threatened to ignite after a three game unbeaten streak that followed four consecutive defeats at the start of the season. However, they’ve since lost three on the bounce (all 3-1) to remove any burgeoning optimism, and their latest defeat to Schalke leaves them in the bottom-three. Bremen have trailed at the break in four of their last five, though only once in their last 13 at home, and 11 of the last 13 Bundesliga meetings between these two sides have been level at half-time.
Eintracht Frankfurt’s form is much better, with only one loss in their last eight and five wins to boot, leaving them level on points with Dortmund and FC Koln near the top of the table. There’s been a notable improvement in their away form of late; after losing seven out of eight on the road, their last four have included two wins and a draw at Borussia M’gladbach, one of the Bundesliga’s toughest away days.
10 of Frankfurt’s last 11 away matches have seen at least one team not score, failing to hit the back of the net themselves in eight of these games. However, Bremen’s last nine matches have seen both teams score (and in 16 of their last 17 at home) and so we’re wary of touching the goals market. With Bremen’s form such as it is, coupled with how difficult Frankfurt are to beat (they’ve only lost three of their last 14, all 1-0), we’re backing Frankfurt to triumph in this one at 2.62.
